not sure how much of an eliminate it is supposed to be, and therefore weather I cheated or not, but the line gets pinched out by the other routes after the bold start slab. the grade of the slab move depends on where exactly on the slab you climb, my line only felt 5a

Soft for the grade, but quite fun all the same.

Some great moves on the slab, but nowhere near 5b, and poorly protected, so the grade is really odd
